Forage Rye

Winter sown conventional rye can form a vital part of a double crop biomass rotation. The wide sowing window and aggressive nature of the crop make it ideal for following major autumn harvested crops. GENERATOR Forage rye’s earliness of maturity enables good yields of biomass to be taken in early summer potentially allowing for a second catch crop, or in some cases major forage crops, to follow it.

GENERATOR

GENERATOR is a very early maturing rye, up to a week earlier than mainstream varieties and up to 10 days earlier than many triticales. This enables high yields of biomass to be taken to use in AD plants in late May or early June, allowing for a second catch crop to be sown for biomass production to be harvested in late summer.

Benefits

1. Biomass

GENERATOR produces very high yields of biomass for use as forage or in AD plants and it’s earliness allows for a second crop to be grown, dramatically increasing the total biomass yield from the land.

2. Soil Erosion

By establishing rapidly, GENERATOR reduces the risk of erosion due to wind or water over the winter.

3. Weed Control

GENERATOR is very vigorous and can play an important role in suppressing autumn weeds and volunteers.

Sowing

Depending on location, from mid September to the end of October.
